Georgia Tech really challenges its students, not only because of its prestige but because it wants to expand the minds and boundaries of those who study there. The university takes advantage of Atlanta, and its connections with industry leaders to exceptionally prepare its students for jobs. While some aspects of the campus leave something to be desired, like the food and the stress, Georgia Tech ultimately provides its students with a wonderfully fun and engaging experience!
I love Georgia Tech! If I could do it over again, I would definitely pick this school. From the beautiful campus, excellent teachers and friendly, helpful staff and students I couldn't ask for anything more. Being an engineering college, I find I am surrounded by a lot of like-minded people who are trying to attain the same goal. It is known to be difficult academically and find I am constantly challenged, which is not a problem for me. I work best under pressure. On the other hand, that may be a reason for someone else to not pick Georgia Tech. Plus, the football game this past weekend against Florida State is something I will never forget. It was fantastic to be a part of that and witness it.
Great parties and fun activities! Not a member myself, but they're always active in the campus and hosting events and fundraisers. They're not snobby or very "elite," but they sometimes have pretty exclusive parties and it can be difficult to get in to some, but there's always another frat that'll welcome you to party, as long as you know someone.
